Visually and Emotionally Spectacular
9 September 2019 | by sarahkchSee all my reviews

A stunning story that tugs at the heartstrings. Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne bring their characters to life with a lively chemistry that elevates the film to new heights. The cinematography transports you into the world of the film, making you feel like you're joining Amelia and James on their historic flight. I'm definitely going to see it again when it hits theaters in December!
